Inscription.  Of the five original mounds located on the eastern bank of Steele Bayou, only Mounds A and B survive. At 40 and 16 feet respectively, Mounds A and B were built using a technique called basket loading. Archaeological excavations found evidence of at least one structure associated with Mound A. Pottery and other artifacts indicate that Native Americans lived at Grace during the Coles Creek Period, as early as AD 850, but the mounds were built during the Mississippi Period, ca. AD 1200 - 1600.
